Your Song

When given the task of choosing a theme for our yearbook, the staff was faced with many 
ideas and options ranging from the mildly realistic to the extremely ridiculous. After many 
hours of arguments and headaches, a decision was made to base the book on music and 
songs. We decided to do this not because it was 3:3Q on a Friday afternoon and we all 
wanted to get home, but because we realized that we had to choose a theme that appealed 
to everyone in the class. Let's face it, everyone likes music. Whether it be heavy metal or 
easy listening, we all expose ourselves to music everyday. We listen to it on the way to 
school, in our cars, and while doing homework (sometimes) after school. A big portion of 
our weekly paychecks goes toward new albums or cassettes, not to mention T-shirts, pins, 
and concert tickets. It is this mutual interest that brings us together not only as a class, but 
as a generation and that will provide us with memories that we will keep for many years to 
come. After all, that is what a yearbook is supposed to do, bring back memories. The 1 98^ 
yearbook staff feels that we have accomplished this purpose; we only hope you do too. 

Hot Blooded 


On two days this year, the courageous, 
brave souls of Methuen High School came out 
of the woodwork and appeared in the field 
house to participate in the bloodmobiles 
sponsored by the Senior Class. Upon entering 
the field house, one could see many queer 
expressions and could hear the whispering of 
questions such as: "What am I doing here?" 
and "Is this going to hurt?" being asked 
among many students. Apparently though, 
the students have decided that they were 
supposed to be there, for in the first 
bloodmobile alone, over "75 pints of blood were 
collected. Besides giving blood, there were 
many other tasks to be done and many 
seniors helped out in this class activity. Some 
helped by taking temperatures, others by 
carrying pints of blood, and still others by 
talking to people while it was their turn to give 


Sing, Sing A Song 

The Methuen High School Chorus is open to all 

singers with approval of the instructor. They sing 

choral music from all periods and styles in 3, A, and 5 

part harmony. They perform in concerts at the schoo 

and in the community. Once a year they participate in 

the production of a Broadway Show.

Every yean at Methuen High 

School, a week is set aside for 

the students and faculty to 

show their pride and 

enthusiasm for their school. 

On Monday it was "Toga Day" 

and on Tuesday "Hats and 

Sunglasses" appeared on 

almost every head around. On 

Wednesday it was "Prep, Jock 

and Hood Day" and many 

people switched identities in 

order to show their spirit. 

Originality was displayed on 

Thursday which was "Costume 

Day" when everything from a 

harem girl to a cloaked 

skeleton appeared. Finally, on 

Friday, everyone showed up in 

'BLUE and WHITE" to cheer for 

the powder puff players in that 

annual event. We've got 



We Are The Champions 


The outcome of the annual Powder Puff 
Football Game was a victory for the Seniors 
with a final score of B-O. The Seniors were 
coached by Mr. Stephen Sudol and Ms. Susan 
Marin. The Juniors were coached by Mr. Joseph 
Robilland. This year's cheerleaders were the 
best yet with a special appearance by 


Working for the Weekend 


"Everyone's watching to see what you can do. 

Everyone's looking at you. Everyone's wondering, will 

you come out tonight? Everyone's trying to get it 

right. " 

Day after day, work-study students scatter to the 

many different jobs. These jobs give them on the jobs 

training and experience for the real world. They train 

day after day so that when it is time for them to face 

the world, they will be ready. The training prepares 

them for the problems of real life, and the challenges. 

The incentive for all of this usually is enjoyment, the 

kind that we all look forward to after a week of hard 

work. "Everybody's working for the weekend. " 



Billy Joel 



The SAT's are given on 
Saturday mornings in the 
late fall and the late spring. 
On these mornings, 
college-bound students enter 
the building like students on 
"Death Row" heading for 
their last meals before 
execution. These tests make 
even the most confident 
students nervous. There are 
six tests divided into English 
and Math. These tests must 
be finished within limited time 
periods. One of the hardest 
parts of the test is filling out 
the personal information 
section. A student who can 
figure out the hardest math 
problems often has trouble 
remembering his or her own 
date of birth. The Seniors 
feel the most pressure 
during the test given during 
the fall of their senior year. 
This is the last time that 
they can bring their scores 
up to meet college 
requirements. When the 
tests are over, everyone 
heads for McDonalds, 
Burger King or the Mall. 
After the fall test, lunch is 
usually followed by the 
football game. Almost 
everyone admits that the 
hardest part of the SAT's is 
waiting for your scores to 
arrive in the mail! 



Come Together 


The annual 

teacher reception 

was held on 

November 23, 

1 9B3. The food 

was prepared by 

the Student 

Senate, including 

salads, cold cuts 

and baked goods. 

This "coming 

together" of the 

faculty is an event 

looked forward to 

by all participants. 


Come On Feel The IMoize 

Quiet Riot 

The Methuen High School Marching Band, 
which consists of 1 02 students and is directed 
by Mr. David Isadone, is most famous for 
performing at football games. Although the band 
gains its fame at these games, it also competed 
in four competitions this year. The awards 
received during these competitions included one 
first place, two third places, and a fourteenth 
rating in the state competition, along with top 
color guard, percussion, music, and drum major

Puttin* on the Ritz 


A few members of the 

senior class were caught 

"puttin' on the ritz" at a 

local fashion show. The 

select group modeled 

wedding and prom tuxedos 

for Mr. Tux. The show 

was put on at several 

places including the 

Andover Country Club, 

the Salem Inn, and Mr. 

Kay's in Haverhill. 

Participating in this 

exclusive event were: 

Stephen Walsh, Mike 

DiPalermo, David Picarillo, 

Brett Ruhmann, Shae 

Baddoun, and Tom Kelley.

The Who 

Everyday at 2:00, Methuen 
High's eighth period class 
begins. Approximately "75 
students are greeted by Mr. 
Noiseux for one of the 
school's most popular classes 
. . . detention. Although 
detention is supposed to be a 
punishment, for some it is a 
great opportunity to catch up 
on gossip or plan the 
upcoming weekend. 


The annual Homecoming Game was played 

on a cold, blustery day, November 1 2, 1 9B3 

against Haverhill. The big bold blue and white 

Rangers came out on top by a score of 1 9 to 

O. Before the start of the game, the three 

finalists for the 1 984 Homecoming Queen 

contest were escorted onto the field by 

Senior Class President Dave Picarillo and 

Senior Class Vice-President Tony Ramy. Last 

year's Homecoming Queen, Sandy Novak, was 

present to crown the 1 984 winner. Crowned 

as the 1 984 Homecoming Queen was Ellen 

Endyke, attended by Lori Leahy and Kelly

This One's For You 

"Through the Years" in this 

vast Methuen High School, 

there has been a dedicated 

faculty member who has been 

willing to serve the students of 

this school as a friend as well 

as a confidant. This person has 

always been willing to listen to 

our problems, complaints, and 

criticisms, and has always tried 

to help us deal with them. His 

advice is considered, by many, 

to be the best around, and he 

is respected by faculty as well 

as students. It is with great 

pleasure that we, the Class of 

1 984, dedicate our Yearbook 

to a former yearbook member 

himself — our man in tan pants 

— Mr. Nick. 


Barry Manilow 

Only once in a lifetime will one 
come across a person as 
devoted and as important as 
this special man that we, the 
Class of 1 98-4, dedicate our 
Yearbook to. This man has 
been the "Heart and Soul" of 
the majority of the activities of 
our class. He has volunteered 
so much of his valuable time to 
the well-being of the students 
and has been responsible for 
broadcasting many athletic, as 
well as academic events, and 
also for starting the DECA 
program. His dedication to the 
school has given him the 
respect of faculty as well as 
students, and his smile will 
always be remembered. We 
would sincerely like to show our 
appreciation and give our best 
wishes to Mr. Pilat in 
appreciation of everything he 
has done for us. D.F. 

The Class of 1 984 would like to thank these two men for all the dedicator 
and determination they have given our class. Without their encourage 
ment, our four years at Methuen High wouldn't have been as rewarding oi ; 
as successful as they were. "Thanks Mr. Nick and Mr. Pilat, on behalf o 
the entire Class of 8-4". 

I Guess That's Why They Call It The Blues 

Freshman year can only be summed 

up in the title song by Elton John. 

The first year at Methuen High for 

many students is an adjustment 

period. Freshmen have to adjust to 

open classrooms, the layout of the 

building, the six day schedule, and 

being on the bottom rung of the 

ladder. By the end of October most 

of the freshmen have become lost 

at least twice and at least half of 

the freshmen who take a science 

have shown up late to a lab with a 

pass from their study teacher. 

Why? They forgot that they had lab 

on Day B! 

It's awfully hard to believe that we, 

the graduating class, were once as 

vague and immature as today's 

freshmen. It's even harder to believe 

that only three years ago we were 

the freshmen!

It's Getting Better All the Time 

The Beatles 

Sophomore year is an 
important yean. After a year 
of learning the ropes and 
testing the ground, 
Sophomores are ready to 
get involved. You establish 
yourselves as a part of the 
high school. You have always 
been a pant of high school, 
but now you will become 
more active. You are no 
ongen the "babies" of the 
school. You know your way 
around and you should know 
what to expect. 

The big part of Sophomore 
year is receiving class rings. 
This makes you feel like a 
more intimate part of the 
high school. You are also 
one step closer to 
graduating, and you feel, "It's 
Getting Better All the Time." 


One Thing Leads To Another 

The Junior yean is probably the best year during high 
school because many changes are experienced. You are 
now identified as an upperclassman — which means no 
more being pushed around by the Seniors. You start to 
get the feeling of maturity and responsibility. During the 
junior year, you go for your driver's license and hopefully 
pass the test; no more worrying about who is going to 

give you a ride. 

One thing every junior worries about is taking the SAT's. 

Most of the time everyone takes them more than once. 

One of the biggest events of junior year is the Junior 

Prom. Everyone is running around looking for gowns and 

suits at the last minute, wanting everything to be just 

right. It is a very important semi-formal dinner dance. As 

the end of the junior year approaches, the juniors are 

looking forward to the summer and finally their last year 

of high school.

Straight From the Heart 

Bryan Adams 

"Most teachers go to great lengths to make the 
atmosphere miserable! " 

"The good part about Methuen High School is that it 
provides you with a better education than most other 
schools. " 

"I didn't like the open classroom concept because 
when you were taking a test you could hear other 
classes doing their work. " 

"I know I will miss everyone and the times I had these 
four years. " 

"I will always look back and say I should have done this 
or I should have done that, but most of all, I will re- 
member my classmates and favorite teachers! " 
"I feel that most of the pictures in the yearbook are 
the people who take part in the activities in school. 
That's not fair. Some people don't like to take part, 
and we have as much right to be in the yearbook as 
they do. " 

"I only come here to see my friends and that's about 
"Establish a smoking area: 

So that there will be no smoke in the bathrooms; 

So that the bathrooms will not be so crowded; 

So that the bathrooms will not be locked; 

So that there will be doors on the stalls; 

So that the smokers can smoke and I can go to the 
bathroom! " 

"Overall, I feel this school was an efficient learning 
institution for those who wprked so diligently and 
expected to gain knowledge for the future that awaits 
them. " 

"I'm tired of people putting the school down. Sure it 
might have some problems like not having real win- 
dows, but we have had four fun-filled years here. Let's 
remember the good points and great-times we had! " 
"In spite of a few nameless individuals and a few ridicu- 
lous rules, Methuen High is still one of the best high 
schools! " 

"As much as the students complained about the 
teachers, I think for the most part they are well quali- 
fied and care about the students' welfare. " 
"If the students would just think of all that they have 
experienced and learned these four years, they 
wouldn't have anything to complain about."

Barbara Streisand 

Memories of days gone by . . . 
your laughter, your music and 
guitar, your quiet ways will 
always be alive for your 
friends you left behind. 
It seems as though it was only 
yesterday when we shared some good 
times together, but now he's gone, 
after only living a short life, unfulfilled of 
many dreams and goals. 

Even though Marc Somma is gone, 
his memory will live forever. 

"A Friend Forever" 

Taken Away So Young 

Christopher Cross 

We'll always remember the determination 

and dedication of this young lady. Her 

knowledge and experience in swimming was 

phenomenal and influenced the entire team. 

Her attitude was always positive right from 

the very beginning and never once did she 

lose hope. Our team was going to be the 

best, she had this in her head and this is 

what we were going to do. No one 

questioned anything she did, she was 

"perfect" to everyone on the team. The 

only question that puzzles us can be 

summed up in Christopher Cross's song 

Laura — Why was she "Taken away so 

young, taken away without warning?" She 

had so much to give, so much love and help 

to offer and even with what happened, she 

will still influence many of us to strive for 

the top and not give up until we get there. 

Our coach, Jane Cronin, will always be 

remembered by all.

Throughout 1 984, the various clubs and 
organizations held fundraisers in order to 
boost their activities. Flower sales were held 
several times as well as the usual jewelry and 
M & M sales. A Valentine's Dance was held in 
February by the National Honor Society, and 
they also sponsored a spaghetti supper in 

This was also the first year for some new 
fundraising events. The Yearbook Staff 
sponsored a Thanksgiving Day Football game 
tee shirt sale to help promote its 
championship game with Dracut. They then 
held the First Annual Hot Legs contest 
unveiling Matt Machera as the winner at an 
enjoyable event for everyone else. 

1 984 presented us with the first full school 
fundraiser. All four classes of Methuen High 
participated in a candy sale which supplied 
profits to each class. This full school event 
was termed a success and will be continued in 
the future. All things considered, this was a 
wonderful year for fundraising and an 
aggravating year for some.

This year's play, Rehearsal for Murder, was 

different from any previous plays put on by a 
senior class. Not only did it hold you in 
suspense wondering who the guilty person 
was, but it also let you relax as each 
character added his own personal touch for 
comic purposes. 

Many thanks and credits should be given to 
all who helped, beginning with the one and only 
Ma Hovansian. The play needed the 
assistance of make-up, lights, curtains, and 
scenery for the timing to be right. All had to 
work together so everything would run 

So, for three nights we were able to taste 
stardom and feel the excitement of live 
acting. The combination of excitement and 
anxiety seemed worth everyone's effort when 
the cast received a standing ovation on two 
of the three nights. 


Thank-you For Being A Friend 

Seeing the yearbook almost completed we 

thought we would dedicate this page to Mrs. 

Krusell because of her dedication and hard 

work. Even though the year was filled with 

some screams and complaints about meeting 

deadlines, doing layouts, getting pictures 

taken, and writing articles, we know now that 

without that extra push the yearbook would 

not have been an over-all success. All of us 

wish to thank-you for your help.

When Irish Eyes Are Smiling 

Bing Crosby 

St. Patrick's day was celebrated on Friday, 

March 1 6th, this year at Methuen High. 

Shamrocks and shillelaghs abounded and 

some students even claimed to have seen 

leprechauns. Many people sported, "Kiss me, 

I'm Irish" buttons while the sophomore class 

sold green carnations in honor of the day. In 

closing, the only way to fully describe St. 

Patrick's Day 1 9B4 at Methuen High, is to 

say that many Irish Cand some not so Irish] 

eyes were smiling.

Every Picture Tells A Story

Mr. William Russell, the chairperson of the Science 
Department, heads a potentially great team of 
teachers in educating the students of Methuen High 
School in the basics of science. The subjects offered 
in the curriculum are Physics, Chemistry, Biology, 
Ecology, Anatomy and Physiology, Earth and Space 
Science, Earth Science, and Minco Science. There are 
3 levels offered in most of these areas: basic, college 
prep, and honors. 

Approximately 35°/d of the students leave the school 
to go into science oriented college programs, while the 
remaining go on to technical and junior colleges. 

The Methuen High School Art Department is 
located in the central part of the building and is easily 
accessible even though after <4 years, some of our 
graduating seniors still don't know where it is and have 
never been inside it. 

The art department offers a variety of classes for a 
wide range of students of different abilities. These are 
Ceramics, Drawing, Painting & Printmaking, Visual 
Arts and Photography, and Crafts. 

These classes are taught by Barbara Fiorello, 
department head, Mary Lee Moynihan, and Susan 

The Jackson Five 

The academics in our school range from a 

wide variety of Foreign Language courses 

to many different history courses, as well 

as varied areas in the English and the 

Math department. Some of the courses in 

these departments range from Spanish to 

French, Algebra to Calculus, Government 

and Politics to Europe in the 20th 

Century, and Comedy and Humor to 

British Literature for seniors. These 

courses are all offered on a variety of 

levels. Honors, College, and Basic. Our 

school has one of the best and most 

varied academic programs around, and 

this is proven by the wide range of 

colleges and universities our students are 

accepted to. 


Spice of Life 

Manhattan Transfer 

Home Economics and Industrial 
Art courses are offered to both 
boys and girls on an elective basis 
to meet the needs of all students. 
These courses are designed to 
develop the creativity of the average 
student and prepare him for his 
future career. The various courses 
are arranged in order of difficulty to 
give the students an opportunity to 
progress at their own speed. Boys 
and girls in these courses are able 
to experience true to life situations 
and are offered the best possible 
chance to succeed in life. 



Leather and Lace 

Sfcevie Nicks 

The new trends of the eighties have been reflected in 

our high school. Although many boys stuck with the 

traditional outfit of jeans, wonkboots, and t-shirts 

and most of the girls chose to wear the usual 

designer jeans and pumps, there has been a change 

in some of the students' attire. Bold new colors and 

styles have been making their appearance at 

Methuen High School. A variety of clothes such as 

leather pants, mini-skirts, and "Flashdance" inspired 

actionwear have been featured for girls. For the 

boys, punk hair, muscle t-shirts, skinny ties, and 

camouflage pants have been the latest craze. 

Fashion has become more individualized and as long 

as you're comfortable in whatever you wear, you'll be 

in style.

To measure the success of the 1 983 

Field Hockey Team by its win/loss record 

would be a great disservice to the team 

members. It was a rebuilding year in all 

senses and interest was rekindled in the 

sport as seen by the large turn out of 

Freshmen and the improvement of skills 

at both the JV and Varsity levels. 

League All-Star honors were awarded to 

Bev Brien, Chris Salvo, and Dawn Salvo. 

Chris' outstanding ability was further 

recognized by being named to both the 

Merrimack Valley All-Conference Team 

and the Eagle Tribune All-Star Team. 

The future of Field Hockey is looking 

brighter and I believe the Methuen girls wjll 

soon be the team to beat. 

Let's Get It Up 


The 1 983 Volleyball Team compiled 
a record of 9-9. Despite this 
somewhat disappointing total, there 
were a number of close, hard fought 
losses including two against last 
year's champion Billerica, both of 
which went three games and went 
down to the wire. In addition, two 
losses to the 1 9B3 conference 
champion Dracut team were also 
extremely close. 

The Merrimack Valley Conference 
coaches recognized the excellent 
performances of three of our 
outstanding players with the 
selection of Julie Leonard as a first 
team All-Star, Laurel Perusse's 
selection to second team All-Star, 
and Sherri Riviezzo's achievement of 
Honorable Mention. With a fine 
nucleus of underclassmen returning 
next year, we look forward to 
additional success in the fall. 

The Long Run 

The Eagles 


The Boys X-Countny team had 

an impressive season. Led by 

the superior coaching of Mr. 

Robert Fuller and the 

inspiration of their captain 

Chris Cameron, the Rangers 

were a force to be reckoned 

with. Outstanding 

performances were given by 

seniors Paul Hickey and Bob 



Quiet Riot 

The Girls X-Countny 
team was very successful 
against traditional foes 
such as Andover and 
Lawrence. The girls gave 
every team a run for their 
money which was shown 
by tri-captains: Lisa 
Bilodeau, Sandy Palumbo, 
and Angela Plantamura. 





The 1 983-S4 Soccer Team posted a 

record of 1 5-3-3, which earned them 

second place in the tough Merrimack 

Valley Conference. The Rangers were the 

first team in Methuen's history to win a 

game in the Massachusetts State 

Tournament, defeating North Andover 2- 1 . 

This year's team was led by MVC All 

Conference Selection, Glenn Morrisette, 

and All-Stars Mike DiPalermo, Fred 

Sanguedolce, Chip Bradbury, Tony Ramy, 

and Dave Picarillo. Other seniors included 

Dana Atkinson, Joe McGurn, Jeff Thoma,

The 400 free relay team of D. Fyrer, S.

broke the school record, setting a new one at

Sectional Meet in this event. The two senior 

co-captains, Diane Fyrer and Kara 

Nightingale, handed down the honors to 

juniors Kim Kuzmitski and Stephanie 


Three swimmers, Diane Fyrer, Kara 

Nightingale, and Stephanie Hosterman were 

recognized as outstanding performers and 

named as All-Donference All-Stars. The whole

great potential for the future.

New England weather, as 
unpredictable as it is, stood in the 
way of the small Methuen High Ski 
team. Unable to practice much on 
the patchy snow, and with only a 
seven meet season, Methuen did 
not perform their best. It was a 
tough year, but the general remarks 
were to stick it out and make the 
best of it. They were led by Coach 
Marion Gerardi and Captains Rob 
Brown and Kris Topham.

as a whole, the team could not seem to pull their

continued to work hand, adding as many victories 

as possible, and should be proud of their overall 

record. They were led by coaches Larry Klimas and

possessing a unique and distinct talent which contributed to the 
[anticipated] overall success of the book. As the book neared com- 
pletion, it became apparent that only the hard work of each staff 
member coupled with the dedication of our advisor, Ann Marie 
Krusell, made the final product possible. The book stands as a 
reminder of the tremendous "team effort" that went into its pro- 
duction as well as a symbol of the good times to come.

requires a high level 

of achievement in the 

areas of scholarship, 

service, leadership, 

and character. 

Members of the

The major goal of 

this club is to expose 

the Foreign Language 

students to the 

cultural ends of

organized by the 

advisors as well as 

pinata making and 


demonstrations. This 

year the club invited a 

group of singers, "La

The Student Advisory Council is 
made up of 6 students elected by the 
student body, 3 seniors, 1 junior, 1 
sophomore, and 1 freshman. These 
students have to attend at least 5 
meetings of the Methuen School 
Board. At these meetings, the 
students are allowed to present any 
proposals on problems that the 
students have encountered at the high 
school that were not dealt with by the 
high school administration. These 
meetings also allow the students to 
express their opinion of the actions 
that the school committee has taken 
on any issues that affect the high 
school community.

The M. H.S. Bowling League became a 
reality when a group of students 
approached Ms. Fiorilla to see if she would 
start a bowling team and be its advisor. On 
Wednesdays at Academy Lanes in Haverhill, 
the finest bowlers can be seen rolling 
strikes and spares. Students enjoy being 
on a team, exercising, a banquet, 
and winning trophies.

It's A Little Too Late 

Pat Benatar 


Of all the daily activities that occur at M.H.S. 

lateness to class seems to be one of the most 

popular. For some it is a way of life. After all, your 

body just starts coming to life at 1 :00. A good 

actor or actress can always manage to escape 

detention by thinking of an original excuse. With 

the help of experienced staff members, a list of 

some of the most original and commonly used 

excuses was comprised. 

I'm sorry I was late, but . . . 

... I didn't hear the bell ring. 

. . . My bus was late. 

. . . My locker was jammed. 

... I was in gym. 

... I was in the office, [guidance, bathroom, nurse] 

... I was talking to a teacher. 

... I thought there was a fire drill and I went 

outside first. 

... I forgot my map. 

... I had to walk a transfer student to class. She 

didn't know the way. 

... I was hungry and stopped at the lunch line. 

... I was getting another excused absence. 

... I was walking my girlfriend/boyfriend to class.

The Annual National Honor 

Society Induction took place on 

April 26, 1 9B4, in the High 

School Assembly Hall and 

marked the entrance of 

twenty-five new members into 

the society. While guest 

speaker Gerry Molina [from the 

Lawrence Eagle-Tribune) 

entertained the large audience 

with remembrances of his past 

tenure in the society, 

members Margaret 

Arcidiacono, Daniel Barry, 

Paul Izzi, and Kathy Stacy 

spoke on the four tenets of the 

N.H.S. The ceremony was 

conducted by outgoing 

President Glenn Morissette 

and included the transition of 

leadership powers to the 

incoming junior officers. The 

ceremony was well attended 

and should prove to be the 

beginning of another successful 

year for the new members.

The local French and Spanish Honor 
Societies held their inductions in the

French or Spanish for four years and 
have kept an "A-B + " average are 
eligible. The induction includes a candle 
lighting ceremony during which 
inductees promise to use their 
knowledge of a foreign language as a 
tool to help themselves and others in 
the future. The induction also included 
a speech on the status of foreign 
languages at Methuen High. At a time 
in our country's history when the rest 
of the world is at our doorsteps, it is 
nice to know that some students from 
Methuen High have proven that we will

On November 18, 1 983, several talented 

Methuen High School students took to the 

stage for our second annual variety show. 

Shirley Hovanasian, otherwise known as "Ma", 

directed this "Ranger Revue", while Mike 

Whittaker, Mark Jozokos, and Lisa Bilodeau 

served as M.C.s. 

Throughout the show, performers delighted 

the audience with many singing, dancing, and 

comedy acts. With the help of the production 

crew, the show was a great success and will 

hopefully continue to be successful in the years 

to come.

It was a cold night, but that 
didn't stop anyone from having fun. 
Our Jr. Prom had finally arrived 
and we were more than ready for 
it. We knew that it wouldn't be as 
good as a Senior Prom, but we 
didn't rush to get our licenses for 
nothing. It was now time to dress 
our best and show everyone how 
much class we really did have. The 
night had become a success and 
we will never forget it.

The 1 9B4 Dance Company Show was held on 

Sunday, May 1 3, and was hosted by the dynamic 

duo, Shae Baddour and Tim Frechette. Senior 

dancers Tammy Qualtens, Lisa Holland, Marissa 

Sacchieno, Karen Balsamo, and Kelly Siggens 

captivated the audience with many talented moves, 

while the underclassmen also appeared to be in 

good form. The show was highlighted by many 

special guests, including Nicole Dibenedetto, 

Methuen Break Dancers, and the local band 

"Jackets Required". This year's show, "Thriller", 

was a great success thanks to the dedication of 

its co-ordinator, Miss Lisa Bell.

On Tuesday, May 29, 
students, parents, and 
faculty gathered for the 
annual senior Awards 
Night held in the high 
school assembly hall. 
Many awards, both 
scholastic and athletic, 
were given to deserving 
students. The evening 
marked the end of four 
years of hard work for 
many individuals. 





"It's going to go by fast ... so be prepared." With 
those words we were welcomed here just four short 
years ago. We sat in the same seats looking up at the 
same stage wishing the speaker were almost done. 
Well, don't worry, this won't be too long. 

That time has finally arrived . . . The time when each of 
us must go out into the world and assume some degree 
of responsibility. Some are going to settle down into 
good jobs while others are going to further their educa- 
tion at the college or university of their choice. Whatev- 
er option you take, I'd like to give you some advice. 

I'm sure that some of you are a little nervous or fright- 
ened about taking the so-called plunge into the real 
world. Don't worry, that's only natural. You must be 
confident, for confidence is the key to a successful fu- 
ture. As long as you know you can succeed, you will 
succeed. Take the knowledge you have supposedly ac- 
quired here and put it to use in the real world. Only 
through hard work and determination will you overcome 
the obstacles that everyone faces along the path of life. 
Although, at times, they may seem insurmountable, be 
confident that you have what it takes to become a suc- 

cess. Only you are the master of your own destiny; only 

you will determine your fate. 

As you leave here today, go forth with determination, 

strength, and the courage to face all challenges that 

come your way. I wish you good luck and good health in 

the future. 

Thank you

All Night Long 

Lionel Richie 



The night of May 26, 1 9B4 was a 
night to remember. The seniors of 
Methuen High School celebrated the 
biggest event of their last year. 

This event was the senior prom 
which was held at the Sheraton Rolling 
Green in Andover. The apparel for this 
glamorous occasion was formal 
tuxedos and long gowns. 

After eating a roast beef dinner, the 
prom continued with all kinds of 
dancing, including a period of break 
dancing. There will be many memories 
to look back upon — memories that 
we will treasure forever. 

How Many Times Can We Say Goodbye? 

Luther Vandross S. Dionne Warwick 

This year's graduation was 
held inside because of the rain 
that "blessed" us the entire 
week before. Although the 
weather may have been 
dampened, the spirits of some 
380 graduates weren't. As the 
graduates marched into the field 
house, shouts could be heard 
and many bubbles were seen. 
Each young lady had a red rose, 
honor graduates wore gold 
tassles and Honor Society 
members wore gold stoles. 

Beginning the ceremony were 
speeches given by Salutatorian, 
Glenn Morissette, Honor 
Essayist, Gary Gearin, and 
Valedictorian, Diane Fyrer. 

After scholarships were 
awarded, diplomas were given 
out by School Committee 
members Joseph Salvo and 
Jackie Weagle. Shouts and 
appause from fellow graduates 
as well as relatives and friends 
ended this graduation on June 
3, 1 984, a day which will long be 



Best; of Times 


We the class of 1 984 entered M. H. S. in the year of 1 980 anticipating the many challenges lying before us. 
We became easy targets for the upperclassmen as we were seen lugging all our books to every class. We 
realized we were no longer in junior high, as we gazed down the long corridors of a new building. Armed with our 
trusty Methuen High map and compass perched atop our stack of books, we tried to distinguish between the 
North House and the South House. 

Taking on the new challenges our freshman class leaders were President Marissa Sacchiero, vice president 
Tracy McNichols, secretary Heidi Van Meter, and Treasurer Danielle Valoras. 

The freshman Field Hockey team compiled a record of 9 wins and 1 loss. Memorable players carrying the 
team were Maura Bresnahan, Judy Brown, Beth Ford, Barbara McCarthy, Jodi Nicolosi, Karen Ricci, and 
Beth Schmottlach. Also holding up the Methuen winning tradition, ALMOST, was the Boys' Frosh B-ball Team 
with a record of 3 wins and 1 5 losses. Outstanding members were Rafael Bueno, Sean CTall) Cusack, Mark 
Zappala, and Gary Gearin. Ending the tradition of Freshman Cheerleading were Co-captains Theresa Bolduc 
and Amy Hilderbrandt leading our teams to victory. 

With one year behind us and 3 more to follow we began to beam with confidence as we looked forward to our 
sophomore year. We became more daring and names heard more frequently on the intercom were: Anthony 
Carelli, Diana Croft, Bobbie- Jo Estes, Mario Finnochiaro, Kim Kasperowitz, and Ellen McGibbon. Our J.V. 
Baseball team had a very successful year with a record of 1 O wins and 4 losses. The squad consisted of such 
players as: Jeff Raimondi, Paul McPeak, Rich Salois, and Darren Spada. 

Leading us through ourdifficult Sophomore yearwas Pres. Marissa Sacchiero, VicePres. Heidi Van Meter, 
seer. Rachael Demers, and Treasurer Frank Cavallaro. With the arrival of our class rings, much to our 
dismay, the artists rendition of the ranger had a nose that rivaled Shae Baddour. 

With thoughts concerning our junior year we held our elections which resulted in Pres. Dave Picarillo, 
Vice-Pres. Tony Ramy, Secretary Fred Sanguedolce, and Treasurer Kelly Siggens. 

The years 1 982 and 1 983 proved to be successful for varsity football. Some of the more outstanding 
players on the team were Steve Walsh and Dan McCarthy. 

Lisa Bilodeau, Sandy Palumbo, Angela Plantamura, and Karen Whiteside helped lead the varsity indoor 
track with an impressive record of 5 wins and 2 losses. 

Our junior year proved to be successful for some, but for others, such as the Boys Varsity Tennis team who 
with a record of 5 wins and 1 3 losses proved the theory "You Can't Win them All! " Members of this team who 
never gave up were Dan Barry, Glenn Grillo and Sean Cusack. 

To keep us entertained during the day, we had a live boxing match between James Murphy and Al 
Moschetto. Ringside referee, Arthur Nicholson III, declared the fight a draw with a prize for each contestant: 
a 3 day vacation. This by the way was a sell-out crowd. 

Our Varsity Boys' Indoor track team had an impressive season with a record of 8 wins O losses. Juniors 
helping in this performance were Chris Cameron, Paul Hickey, Rob Marggraf and Barry Tardugno. 

The month of April was highlighted by the Junior Semi-Formal at DiBurro's on the 1 5th. As usual, most 
attending were found escaping to parties by 10:00 

As the school year came to an end the candidates for Boys' and Girls' State were chosen; they consisted of: 
Dave Picarillo, Steve Walsh, Gary Gearin, Paul Izzi, and Erik White. Kathy Dignam, Maura Bresnahan, and 
Beth Schmottlach. 

Our final class elections were held in May. After the count and recount, the results were: Pres. — Dave 
Picarillo, V. Pres. — Tony Ramy, Treasurer — Kelly Siggens and newcomer Barbara McCarthy. Sec. 

In September of 1 983, we were now at the top of the ladder. Senioritis, which began 2 days after Labor 
Day, was evident by the attendance at Marc DiFrucia's house party which rivaled any other event held by 
Methuen High. 

Our Homecoming Queen this year was Ellen Endyke attended by Lori Leahy and Kelly Siggens. The band 
provided us with halftime pleasure and as in past years continued to win various awards. The band consisted 
of many talented seniors such as Debbie Furnari, Tim Sipsey, Matt Machera, Mark Hertrich, Cathie Cullum, 
Katie Lannan, Rafael Bueno, Randy McCrillis and Brenda Hughes. Tim Frechette, our own cheerleader. 
donned his blue wig and entertained us whenever we needed a little spirit. 

Records were set by the soccer team. Led by Co-Captains Mike DiPalermo and Glenn Morissette, the team 
boasted an overall record of 1 4-3-3 and won its first state tournament game ever. Other seniors were: Tony 
Ramy, Dave Picarillo, Paul McPeak, Glenn Grillo, Chip Bradbury, Joe McGum and Jeff Raimondi. Also our only 
girl ever to earn a Varsity Soccer Letter, Marissa Sacchiero. 

Seniors John Saba and Mike Whittaker led the Varsity Wrestling team to an undefeated season and a first 
place finish in the M.V.C. Tournament. Other Seniors were Dan McCarthy, Dave Kraunelis and Dave 

Still with another M.V.C. Championship this year the Girls' Varsity Basketball team closed out a terrific 
season with an overall record of 1 5-3. Our team of NICE girls was led by Co-Captains Chris Salvo and Teresa 
Padvaiskas. Other seniors were: Kathy Dignam, Bev Brien and Pam Moll. 

Time seemed to fly by as we filled out applications and anxiously waited to hear from colleges and job 

Before we realized it, the senior class play was upon us. For the first time in Methuen High history, we 
experimented with a drama instead of a comedy. Rehearsal for Murder produced many aspiring actors and 
actresses such as Rob Marggraf, Lori Passerello, Lisa Bilodeau, Karen Cardoza and Robyn Moll. 

During this blur of time, the 1 98-4 Yearbook Staff was rushing to make their deadlines. Led by co-editors 
Heidi Parker and Dan Barry, the staff made the deadlines by the skin of their teeth. 

This year's Senior Prom was held at Sheraton Rolling Green on May 28, 1 984 which will always be a 
long-lasting memory! And that's the way it was in this year of 1 984. 

That's all folks!

anxious buyers are Joel Cameron, Gina Izzi, and Erik White. 

Laurie Leach is now the owner of a hair cutting company, and her two best customers are Manny 

Marchese, now an English Professor at Tufts, and Tony Carelli.

biggest group since the Beatles, with their biggest fan Debbie Furnari still waiting for an autograph. 

Tim Frechette, after dropping out of Mass Art School, married, and he and his wife are now living 

comfortably on his wife's social security. 

In the year 2004 NBA championship, the team of Karen and Sharon Spinney. Dave Richardson. Michelle 

Leclerc, Tom Kelly and Jeff Hailson narrowly defeated the team of Lisa Bilodeau. Pam and Paula Markert. 

Andy Vermette, Sean Cusack, and Wesley Haigh. Losing coach Rob Marggraf was quoted "It would have 

been a big win for us little guys". Matt Machera and Chris Morasse will be selling pencils in front of 

Lawrence District Court after flunking out of Suffolk Law School.

Methuen swimmers Kara Nightengale, Diane Fyrer. and Erin Commerford. 

The 1 9S4 Yearbook staff on their 20th Reunion noticed that Mrs. Krusell was wearing an outfit that 

she had worn before. Scott Truesdale, Bob Petzoid and Peter Cardini were all abducted by aliens from 

another planet, and forced to listen to disco music. Once freed they were put under the psychiatric care 

of Doctors Patty Tardiff and Kathy Dignam. Kim Holdsworth (Queen Beef] has bought out Wendy's and 

will be opening her chain of fast food stores called "Kimber's Burgers"

for her achievements in recruitment. 

After being charged with embezzlement of 1 million dollars in travelers checks, Glenn Morissette and 

Crazy Diane Fyrer are holding out in Zimbabwe. 

While shopping in a lingerie boutique, Joanne Zaremba, Cindy Bouchard, Paula Wlasits and Marjorie 

Waks ran into the proud owners of the store, ex-marines Chris Bundzinski, Richard Greene, and Andy 

As we prepared to eat, we notice that some members of the graduated class are missing. We have learned that 
Mr. Nicholson has found them all skipping dinner for a nightcap at Marc Difrucia's house. 


Step by Step 

Al Jameau 

One day at a time — 

this is enough 

Do not look back 

and grieve over the past, 

for it is gone; 

and do not be troubled 

about the future, 
for it has not yet come. 

Live in the present, 

and make it so beautiful 

that it will be worth 


— Ida Scott Taylor 
These famous words written by Ida Scott Taylor should be the precedent for each individual present today. 
Because of the chaos of today's world, many are concerned with memories of yesterday and thoughts of 
tomorrow, and often fail to realize the importance of today. This is life. 

All of us may have many strong recollections of the past, but they are gone; we cannot bring them back, 
regardless of how hard we try. Surely, there are things we have done which we all regret and long to forget, but 
these things were meant to teach us a lesson, and we have learned from our mistakes as well as from the mistakes 
of others. On the other hand though, there are times we yearn to remember. These times were often "dreams 
come true" — times we'll never forget. 

Although it may be our wish to relive the past, it is more meaningful preserved within our minds. 
Along with remembrances of things past come thoughts of the future. In a few weeks we shall be heading our 
separate ways and continuing our lives, but we cannot be troubled by these thoughts of the future. The future will 
come when it comes. Now we must live for today. Obviously, plans for the future must be made and thoughts of the 
future cannot be avoided, but we must not dwell upon these ideas. Many of us may be worried about what will 
happen in future years. We should be concerned, to some extent, with this but not overly concerned to the point of 
being troubled by it. Eventually, things will work out; they usually do for most of us. Don't wish this treasure of life 
away; life is short enough as it is. 

I'm not advising you to forget the past or never think of the future, but I feel it's important to keep in perspective 
that today is the day we should be anxious about — today was meant to be unique in many special ways for each of 
us. This day should be lived as if it were the first day, as well as the last day, of our lives. Each day was made to 
provide us with the opportunity to better ourselves and fullfill every one of our precious dreams. This is the goal 
towards which we should strive. 

It is with this thought that I leave you, my fellow Classmates, the Class of 1 984, and wish all of you the best of 
luck. Farewell. 

Valedictory Address 1 9B«4: 
Diane V. Fyrer 


-; *n 

Mirror, Mirror 

Diana Ross 

Honored guests, parents, members of the school committee, members of the faculty and administration, and 
fellow graduates: 

Welcome to the graduation of the Class of 1 9B4. 

Today is a day which we will long remember as a turning point in each of our lives. We are looking forward to the 
future and setting new goals for ourselves and, at the same time, we are reflecting upon these last four years with 
• feelings of accomplishment and gratification. Each of us has shared one common goal, and we have successfully 
reached that goal together here today as we become graduates of the Methuen High School Class of 1 9S4. 

Fortunate are those persons who are able to carry over into the future those qualities and traits they have 
developed enabling them to succeed in high school. Upon entering college or the job market, we are tested by 
having to rely on those morals we have attained through family, school and social experiences. The invaluable 
knowledge we have acquired throughout high school has come not only from books, but also from relationships 
among friends and faculty. Our family's support has encouraged us, and we share our pride and gratification with 
them today. 

Discipline, organization, independence and adaptability are just a few of the many values which we have learned in 
order to help us to prepare for our future. Looking back over these past years, we see how, with each day and with 
each new experience, we have become more aware of our own capabilities and the standards we have set for 
ourselves. We are now less dependent upon others and more responsible as young adults because of our 
education both in and out of the classroom. 

One may wonder, for example, how a seemingly senseless mathematics problem can prepare him for life ahead. 
Math teaches a person how to deal not only with problems in text books, but also with problems that a person 
experiences in life. To solve a text-book problem, a student first examines and understands it and then proceeds to 
use techniques he has been taught in a step-by-step process to reach a solution. A person may resolve problems in 
everyday life much in the same way. Thinking things through and having a positive attitude are essential in resolving 
problems both in math and in life. 

Reflections of our past are necessary throughout our lives as we remember both our successes and our 
failures, learning from each and always remaining confident of our capabilities and challenged by our new en- 
deavors. As we look to the future, a quote from the American poet, Ralph Waldo Emerson, is surely full of 

"What I must do is all that concerns me, not what people think ... It is easy in the world to live after the world's 
opinion; it is easy in solitude to live after your own; but the great man is he who, in the midst of the crowd, keeps with 
perfect sweetness the independence of solitude." 

We hope the knowledge we have acquired, the experiences from which we have benefited and the friendships we 
have begun will remain with us as we reflect on our past and step into the future. 

Congratulations — Class of 1 9B4 

Salutatorian Address 1 9B4: 
Glenn (Vlonssette 


Dream On 


For the past four years we have had the constant inspiration of our parents, teachers, and friends. But as we 
mark the end of this four-year period, we also mark the beginning of a new era of independence; independence that 
will lead us all to different pursuits, pursuits that will no longer be filled with the constant push of those around us. 
The inspiration that will spur us onward will be ours. 

Our dreams and imagination will serve as the motivation as we strive to succeed. Our sense of desire will serve as 
the driving force as we overcome the apparent insurmountable obstacles of the future. Our ability to fulfill these 
aspirations will give the key to our success. 

The future is ours and it is up to us to go out and seize it; it is up to us to fulfill our dreams and to achieve our 
desires. Our dreams are the future, fellow classmates. Whether it is to become a doctor, lawyer or even President 
of the United States we have all had dreams. And in the immortal words of William Shakespeare: 

"We are such stuff as dreams are made on. " 

Skeptics have said that dreams cause disillusionment. But I believe that those who have no dreams, have no 

I urge you to dream on, dream until your dreams come true. But remember to have the courage and fortitude to 
strive towards the fulfillment of these dreams. Have the strength and desire to achieve these dreams. Most 
important is to develop self-confidence and self-esteem to insure these dreams will become realities. 

Often times we have heard the words of inspiration: 
"If you can imagine it, you can achieve it 
If you can dream it, you can become it. " 

If I could leave you, my fellow graduates with one hope, it would be the hope that your dreams of today become 
your achievements of tomorrow.

Panlex manufactures flexible printed circuits, flat laminated cable, rigid printed circuits, rigid 
multilayers, and custom thick film hybrids. Our products are used by many of the world's 
foremost manufacturers of electronic equipment for defense, communications, computers, 
process control, Equipment, Motorola, and hundreds of others. 

Parlex is a name synonymous with inventiveness and quality. The company is a leader and an 
innovator in its specialty: interconnection and products for electronic equipment. 

Parlex Corporation was organized in May of 1 970. The founders of the company initially 
rented office space at the Old Town Hall building in Methuen, Massachusetts. In October of 
that same year operations began at the present site, located at 1 45 Milk Street in Methuen. 
The original building was 1B.DOO sq. ft. Later in 1974, and again in 1979, additional space 
was constructed increasing the building area to 50,000 sq. ft. expansion first completed in 
June of 1 982 gives Parlex a total of 1 20,000 sq. ft. This makes Parlex one of the largest 
manufacturers in its field. 

Parlex products have been to the moon and beyond, they also fly in aircraft, travel in U.S. 
Army tanks, move rapidly in computer printers, and they are at the heart of many 
pacemakers. ^^^^^^^^JM

After three nights of performances, the cast 
members and backstage crew of the Senior Class 
Play celebrated at the cast party. This year the 
party was held at the Grotto Casanelli in Haverhill. 
After dinner was served, the tables were pushed 
aside to allow more room for the festivities. Inspired 
by such movies as Flashdance and Footloose, many 
students demonstrated their dancing ability and all 
enjoyed the evening. 



This Is It 

Kenny Loggins 

1 984 was a yean in which we saw many 

changes come about. On both the local and 

national levels, many events occurred which 

should prove to be indelible memories that 

we will keep for many years to come. While 

furor raged between the high school and 

superintendent's office over the 

controversial re-accreditation report, some 

took a much needed day off courtesy of 

Mark DiFruscia. On a more serious note, 

the United States scored a military victory 

in the invasion of the island of Grenada, 

while it emerged slightly humilated from the 

Middle East. Superstars like Michael 

Jackson, Boy George, and Tom Cruz 

entertained us while others stood in line for 

their own Cabbage Patch Doll. All in all, 

1 984 was an awesome year marked by the 

most important event of all ... graduation.
